-- i'm not sure how much the presidential race is impacting the senate race in virginia. we have romney narrowing that gap, significantly, with president obama. but kaine still seems to be ahead of allen in the state. is that interesting to you? >> yes, very. i think originally our view was that whoever won state in the presidential race was also going to get a senate seat out of it, because in this political climate, there are a lot of straight ticket voters. not a lot of people splitting their tickets. but it seems that kaine is in a position where he's going to probably outperform president obama in virginia. so there may be scenarios where romney wins in virginia in the presidential race, kaine may win barely in the senate race. >> thanks for joining us this morning. good to have you on the show. >> thanks for having me. >> it is 7:41 now. we'll be back with more news in a couple of moments. stay with us. ve my mpkin co ff pumpkin's perfect. it's dunkin' with the press of a button. new pumpkin k-cup packs, only at dunkin' restaurants. america runs on dunkin' coffee. i'm drinking dun

at some of the senate races, particularly in democratic leaning states like massachusetts and connecticut. president obama being on the ballot will significantly help elizabeth warren and congressman murphy there. when you look at the house, though, the democrats would need to win 25 seats in order to regain it. that number i would actually equate to about 35 due to redistricting and different types of retirement and that number is very difficult. the one way in which you would have seen any movement there is perhaps this was a wave election but all the data indicates it's not, more of a turn out the base, fight over independent election like you saw in 2004. even had mitt romney -- one scenario i've talked about with republicans today, had mitt romney not done well at the debate last week and folks had seen the writing on the wall that perhaps this candidacy was doomed they would have done a bob dole 1996 strategy and doubled down on races in the house and senate and put resources there. romney on the uptick they won't do that. they think there's going to be a lot of enthusiasm for their
